"Driving a gas guzzler is unpatriotic"

So, I come out to get into my 750 Horsepower V12 S65 Renntech'd car today and I find this guy next to me...

Look at the sticker on the car.

LOL

Thats nothing. Some asswhole on the road literally had the nerve to tell us at a stop light that its "rich assholes like us that are ruining America and making us depend on foreign oil" now this is my fathers car and I basically had to talk him out of chasing the guy(was in the turning lane) and kicking his ass. My father wasn't running it hard or anything and we had the windows down just talking. (The prick was in an old Chevy V8 truck!?)

Were you on your way to get into your STC'd, hush-kitted Gulfstream, by any chance?

My guess is your dad can afford the car he drives because he worked hard to get an education and then worked hard to accumulate the money it takes to afford the car he wants. The sour-grapes lazy buggers who snipe at people who have more than they do are the worst kind of blight on a system that rewards effort and punishes sloth. Aside from that, what business is it of anyone what I or someone else does with the money they have earned? I get that every now and again, and I encourage people who make those kinds of comments to perform a sex act that is anatomically impossible.
